Runners from Team Felix get training for the Big Half. 10 lucky readers will join them: Lucy Young/Evening Standard

There is less than one day left to apply to run the Big Half, London’s new official half-marathon, on The Felix Project’s team.

The 10 The Independent and Evening Standard readers joining Team Felix on 4 March will be helping hungry children in London.

As part of a special Team Felix package, the 10 runners will meet Sir Mo Farah, Britain’s most successful distance runner of all time. They will also benefit from tailored online training from coach Martin Yelling, a free sports massage, and access to a dedicated cheering spot for friends and family on the day.

Money raised will help The Felix Project put free, fresh food on market stalls in 120 London schools, alleviating food poverty that leaves 70,000 children hungry in the capital every night.
